Is Jesus a Zionist? (Part 2) | May 25, 2024

Is Jesus a Zionist?

Last week we studied examples from Jesus’ life that demonstrate that He was undeniably a Zionist who understood the inextricable link between the Jewish people and the land of Israel. But after Jesus’ death and resurrection, did that special connection become irrelevant? Is Jesus still a Zionist today?

Chris finds the answer by taking a look at the disciples’ final question to Jesus: “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” (Acts 1:6). Their question was more insightful than many of us realize. His answer? Yes—but not yet. Through Peter’s message to the Jewish people in Acts 3, we learn that the restored Kingdom will come once Israel repents and turns from its sin. Jesus’ reign over the earth is directly linked to the Jewish people fulfilling their calling in the land God promised them! Enjoy the conclusion of our 2-part series on Jesus and Zionism!

It Is No Dream

Have you ever wondered why God chose the Jewish people to bring His plan of redemption to the world? And why, after all these years, are they back in their ancient homeland? 

It Is No Dream by former executive director Elwood McQuaid gives insights into the entire biblical and prophetic program for Israel.


Apples of Gold: Not This Time!

In 1981, three of Zvi’s children were serving in the Israeli Defense Force in Lebanon. They called on Zvi to serve also. Being in his fifties and already serving in four previous wars, Zvi declined. While speaking with the military, Zvi reminded them that victory is in the hands of the Lord. He explained his devotion to the Lord and to his country, helping the Israeli officers to know what a true believer in Christ is like.
